issue is egypt, they are supporting the palestinian tph-s this matter. we are looking at the results of the arab spring. jon: egypt now run by the muslim brotherhood of which hamas is an offshoot. >> that's right. morisi has come out in support of the palestinians. even though the rocket attacks, this violence was initiated by the palestinians. you have the camp david aeu koerbgsdz thaccords, the arab spring. the middle east is a mess. look in iran the centrifuges are still spinning. secretary panetta, and secretary clinton are in asia right now. that pivot, are we pivoting away from the challenges and our interests in the middle east, which is really a mess. jon: you worry we are leaving the israelis high and dry on this one? >> it could be. i don't know exactly what is going on with the administration. they have mad said some of the right things in sue mort of supporting israel. we are reaping the fruits of our labors in the middle east. and our policies in the middle east has been a real failure. if we are shipping through the pacific where are we going to have the planes and tank
that egypt's prime minister plans to visit gaza, gaza, that is, tomorrow. now, don't forget a peace agreement that keeps israel and egypt on good terms. there were real questions about whether that was going to be honored by the new muslim brotherhood president of egypt, and now we find out that this egyptian leader is going to go visit gaza in the midst of rising, escalating tensions between gaza and the israelis. now we want to get back to re land visit earth who is live near the israel/gaza border. so basically, leland, the rockets kept showering into israel, somebody, the head of hamas -- they call him hamas' osama bin laden, basically, took credit for the bloodshed being unleashed in israel. and israel bombed that guy, killed that guy, and now it seems to be escalating from there. >> reporter: exactly, megyn. his assassination happened yesterday around 4 p.m., and hamas came out and said israel has declared war and, quote, opened the gates of hell. and those kinds of words are not things that are thrown around lightly all over the middle east. and definitely as we saw it today, hamas liv
a civil war on israel's doorstep. testy relations with egypt, not to mention the palestinians. it is really not good timing. >> not really. there's no immediate reason behind this attack. the man killed was a very closely cooperating with the israeli side. whenever the israelis had the impression to many rockets were being fired from the gaza strip, it was him who the israelis contacted in order to crush this rocket fire in from the gaza stip. at the same time, he was negotiating with israelis on stopping any violent activity between the two sides, and yet, the israelis decided to kill him. why is it at this stage? we had elections in the united states last week, and there will be elections in israel next month, so this action gives a clear opportunity for mr. benjamin netanyahu to show that he is a strong man, that he is able to handle this challenge as he sees it from his position, by the palestinians. >> israel is just saying it is defending itself against palestinian rocket attacks. what is the trigger for all of this violence? >> we have been watching these events develop
are civilians. no one is firing. >> egypt has denied reports to be arranged a truce. >> for more on the high stakes of this escalating violence, i folk with former senator george mitchell. -- i spokeh witformer senator george w mitchell. thank you very much r gjoinin me. neither side appears to be backing down. this is not going to be over in a few days. just how serious is this? could we be seeing the start of the war? >> it is a very serious issue. i've been saying for some time, nearly a year, there was a will that had created a false sense of security on all sides. the real danger is not so much from the internal conflict within gaza, it is given the highly unstable and volatile situation in the region, this could be a spark that lights a conflict that extent in other unpredictable ways. it is a very serious matter. >> are you seeing any signs of that happening imminently? >> there is a long pattern in history. neither side appears to be backing down. that is in the case in the past. in the past, they have found in their mutual interest to establish a cease-fire for a period. that is th
, between israel and the palestinians, since egypt's leadership has changed. and we know that egypt has a different reaction to this than they did under president morsi than they had in the past under former president mubarak? >> reporter: absolutely. on a few different fronts. one, the leadership here, it's currently aligned with the one that runs egypt. and president morsi comes from that. and the more important one, for the past several days they've been trying to mediate between the palestinian faction in israel. they reached a truce, but that truce didn't hold for long. more importantly, israel is trying to resume a bit of a leadership role. yesterday, they lobbied to secure the security council. and also they convened with the arab league to try to put an end to the barrage of fire. some for its part are calling on egypt to sever ties with israel. that would be a major setback for the united states because the israeli/egyptian peace treaty has been a cornerstone of u.s. policy in the middle east. >> ayman, we'll be checking in with you all day, i imagine. thanks very much. >>> mov
obama can no longer on former ally egypt. there are a member of the muslim brotherhood. thatl members of a group people in several areas of the city. >> some of the victims landed in hospital and required surgery. the neighborhoods we are talking about, even outside the sea. is some of what happened and reactions to one victim. standing at a bus stop in chinatown. >> i can tell you that the of crimes they committed y sometimes is disturbing in and of itself. >> nine members of the gang were today, ranging in age from 15-22 years old. eight crimes, robbery, destruction of property. began about a year ago. >> is super scary. >> we spoke with a victim. history, awayful from the public. >> the even bragged about their exploits on youtube and other t videos showed up about having to fight one another. attacks on the unsuspecting the chiefhat bother counsel of the most. >> i have been able to see the savage beatings. >> it is terrifying that they people over property. >> the number of crimes is not known yet. >> that is ridiculous. >> more are expected. when asked about how many they will h
this country back on track. i think how he egypt plays it's cards is going to play a big role on the territory. with egypt at the back hamas will go all out. if they are telling hamas we are have the brother hood. and we have to find a way out of this with stabbility in tact that is going to be a different outcome. >> i think there is no question it was justified. the attacks, they had gone crazy in terms of the scope and intensity. the problem is that the people there, they have a tactical approach here. they are hitting back and have been trying to do this. israel has invaded gaza and these are tactical moves and they succeed. but what is the strategy to deal with gaza? how does this help and how does it play out with the regional strategy? so, i think there is no question it is just fied, the question is, is it smart? is. >> there is real concern and if you don't have cooperation, ultimately you can't control gaza. this undermines the authority and probably is going to undermine the un path which it might like because it shows that the palestinians are divided. we spoke to the prime ministe
of an effort to engage egypt trying to act as a middle man or not much of a concerted effort to the netanyahu government's part to build up the palestinian authority in the west bank. was this really necessary at this point for israel to act like this? >> the israelis were getting hit by quite a number of rockets, and it's within their judgment to defend themselves and take actions to defend themselves. there are facts here that make you wonder whether or not the israelis may have acted hastily? namely the fact that in addition to hamas there are other actors in the game here. a lot of people are al qaeda types firing the rockets. they consider themselves enemies of hamas. they are firing lots of rockets at israel, and israel is blaming those attacks on hamas because hamas is the regional power broker. i don't know if that's really going to progress ourselves forward. these kind of al qaeda splinter groups never stop firing rockets. hamas has no control over them. if there's a constant cycle where these groups fire a rocket to become a spoiler, israel retaliates and there's a clush of forces
-up like this. you have a u.s. tourist in place like tee egypt who might get kidnapped. as individuals and citizens traveling abroad we have to increase our security. of course the other thing we talk about when you talk about the middle east is the oil supplies. melissa: right. a third of the world's oil comes from this region. at the same time egypt's relationship with israel has gotten worse it seems. is that accurate? they're we're talking about the suez canal. we're not just talking about oil. we're talking about all kinds of trade. >> no, exactly, that is exactly the point. egypt is critical to this. there is a reason we spent decades in, you know, worked so hard, the u.s., to create the camp david accords back in the 1979 and that we spent billions of dollars each and every year giving money to israelis and egyp shuns to keep that in place. egypt is strategic culturally throughout the region and just physically. the suez canal is major, major arterry for trade. you also have a lot of pipelines and other ways that oil moves around in that region. if egypt decides to go ahead and
, president mubarak, out of leadership in egypt, there was -- they were assisting in creating instability around our other ally israel, and that instability continues to grow. one of the things that was helpful from egypt while president mubarak was in charge, at least there was some effort to restrict the transfer of rockets into the gaza strip. so there were some tunnels that would be found, the tunnels had to be kept small so they were able to get smaller rockets into gaza. but now that there's a new regime, apparently the bigger rockets are getting in to gaza and they pose more and more of a threat as they continue to be fired into israel. the action is not only the fall of an ally, president mubarak, but the assistance in bringing to power in egypt the muslim brotherhood. they want to see israel gone and they would also not mind seing the united states gone. it's important when formulating foreign policy that the united states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we ta
, and those two commanders have day-to-day responsibility for the area around israel and the area around egypt. >> we have video of the military leader of hamas who was blown up in his car, and you can even see the explosion here. this is released on the internet in a sort of war of the internet going on as well in the ground with both sides using it for their propaganda purposes. how dangerous do you think it is over there given what we are seeing? hamas has threatened tremendous retribution talk about the gates of hell opened? >> well, i'm more concerned of egypt. the muslim brotherhood is in power now, and it is unsteady power. they have to find the fine line between the secular military and the sopponents. if there is a battle, it is inside egypt. >> and we were talking today earlier to find out that one by one all of the major security breaches are down played and in the end, we are left with general petraeus having had an affair, an affair discovered by the fbi under different circumstance, and in this circumstance, could he have ridden it out? >> well, he, himself, could not ride it out
. >> this is just an example. there are women all over the middle eave, yemen, tuknees yark egypt, they are using social media to show what is really going on there. so try to help mobilize others and to get attention to what the plight of women is. it is absolutely inappropriate that it could be taken down. i think it's back up now. >> greta: it is back up and facebook has apologized. but it ising about that the knee-jerk reaction to remove this picture because there were people where she was living that objected to an unveiled woman. they didn't want that on the facebook page. >> doesn't surprise me, having been in the middle east and saudi arabia and afghanistan and all sorts of places in africa, doesn't surprise me. but very disturbing that facebook would be willing to take it down. >> greta: it's hard to imaginer here, the education, women couldn't get educated. a 14-year-old pakistani girl was hotted in head for confronting pakistan on education. >> the war on women, women who are honor killed after they were raped. they can't go to school, leave their house, travel. this is when we should
to the video that was shown, it may have been the situation in egypt, may have been as a result of the video that went viral on the internet. but there doesn't appear to be at least that here. maybe it was in response to what was happening in egypt. those kind of questions are still going to have to be answered. this is only the first hearings, chris. three we have scheduled. one of those is going to be a public hearing where these kind of questions are going to be asked. and the individuals involved will be able to tell the american public what did happen. >> chris: so, i just want to make it clear. there will be open hearings where the people will not only have to answer to you but we the american people will see what the answers are. >> absolutely. this is too critical an issue. we have four dead americans, including very prominent and a very outstanding ambassador. and the american people deseven to -- deserve a hearing. at the end of the day we'll have an open hearing where the american people can determine for themselves. and to hear from the folks to make a decision about what they th
the situation will get worse before it gets better. one thing nbc has confirmed is egypt's prime minister will make an unprecedented visit to the gaza strip on friday. he's leading a high delegation of cabinet officials to mediate and perhaps broker a truce between the israelis and palestinians but more importantly to express solidarity with the people of gaza who he says are now subject to israeli aggression. >> let me bring in nbc's martin fletcher in tel aviv. martin, senior u.s. officials told nbc news to expect more from israel later today. can you add to that information? >> reporter: well, yeah, the israelis are making it as clear as they possibly can they will do anything it takes to stop the palestinian attacks on israel and to make the southern cities of israel secure. the defense minister said today and he emphasized this, and we will do anything, and i repeat anything to keep those cities secure. the israelis are emphasizing repeatedly from different sources they'll do whatever it takes. when the americans warn that israel will do more this evening, they're echoing what the is
on what is happening around the area around egypt and israel. >> we have video on the military leader that was blown up today in this car. this has been released on the internet. both sides using it for their own propaganda purposes. how dangerous do you think it is right now over there. what do you think? well, i'm more concerned about what is going to happen in egypt. the muslim brotherhood is in power now. they have to find that fine line between the secular military and the radicals and how they react to this latest incident will be instrumental to the instability. let's turn to david petreaus again. it seems that one by one, the possible major security breaches are being downplayed. having had an affair. discovered into something else. under these circumstances could he have ridden this out dow think? >> well, he himself into the effect that an announcement that he had been having an affair with someone not his wife. he knows the affect that this would have on the organization and the institution. and so he did it what one would expect of an honorable man. we have had general eis
, what with the syrian war going on just to the north of us. everyone is looking towards egypt to broker some sort of deal between the militant groups and israel as they have done in the past. egypt, for its part, has withdrawn its ambassador from israel. so far, no progress has been made on that front. of course, the big question going into an obama second term is whether the palestinian peace process could get back on track. of course, this latest development, this escalation, pushes that hope further down the road. >> all right. certainly, we'll keep an eye on that throughout the morning. alex marquardt, again, live for us from jerusalem this morning. thanks, alex. >>> and in other news right now. the suspect in the colorado movie theater massacre has reportedly injured himself in jail, prompting a judge to postpone his hearing. a sorse says james holmes was hospitalized after intentionally ramming his head into a wall in his cell. holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58. >>> a former city comptroller has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $50 million. rita crundwel
